    Monorail evac this evening

    So I was going to take monorail red for a spin after catching a movie at the AMC in Downtown Disney this evening, but when I was at the top of the steps, a cast member used the PA to tell us that the platform and vehicle itself needed to be evacuated. She calmly and clearly told us that we needed to exit the area as quickly as possible. I ended up just heading home after this, but I was curious if anyone had any idea what had happened. I did see one or two security cast members headed in that direction as I left. Anyone know what happened? I hope everything's all right.

    Fair enough - same here. I'll rephrase: anyone have any concrete information? It's fine if not; I'm just curious.

    Let's hope that it's just a broken down Monorail train....

    Re: Monorail evac this evening

    slightly off topic question.

    is there a contingency plan to get guests back into the park when there is an evacuation at the DTD station and they don't have their tickets? I only ask this because the last time I was there with friends and family I took some of the younger kids on the Monorail while the big kids and parents went on the Matterhorn and I didn't have their tickets since we were going on a round trip.

    I never thought about this before haha... I'm sure that, if worse comes to worse, a Cast Member could escort the guests backstage to the park.

    I know when I was at Disneyland on Sat. Red was out working fine as was Orange. So who knows what happen? I think blue is getting work on so that one will not be out for a wild. I could be wrong on that ?

    Easiest solution, I would think, would be to just call the folks with the tickets inside the park and meet them at the turnstyles so they could get back in. But of course, this depends on both parties having cell phones. If this doesn't work out for whatever reason, I'm sure the cast members working the monorails could provide some assistance. Disney does like to keep guests happy when possible, and since a person riding the monorail clearly already had a ticket, I'd imagine cast members at the turnstyles would be able to provide a replacement ticket in the event of an evac in DTD. This is just speculation, though.

    Anyway, since there hasn't been any news of explosions or the like, I suppose it's safe to assume nothing too catastrophic happened this evening, and I'm glad about that.
